Hello Tricia,

There are no farm houses in Portola Valley. A few barns maybe, but no farm houses, at least not the kind that you have in mind.

As far as specializing in old properties, I’m not sure there is an agent out there that does that. Once we know the exact type of property you’re looking for in terms of acreage, architecture, square footage, and price, we can help you find it.

Check us out when you get ready to buy. We are the premier full service discount real estate brokerage on the Peninsula. If we represent you on the purchase of a home we’ll rebate up to 1% of the purchase at close of escrow. We are the new model for residential real estate, “catch the wave”.

Hello Tricia, There are a couple of $8 million dollar chateaus. One with a winery and a 12 stall barn?? Maybe not quite the farm you were thinking of. Does it need to be original? There are two lots on Buck Meadow asking a little over $2 million each. You could build your own farm? I think farmers are pretty smart. Many of the ones I know have kept the property in the family for years. What's your price range? Is Portola Valley the only area you want to consider? Check in with me at 650-563-9651 or glenmitchell@remax.net with some more specifics and I'll see what I can dig up for you. Glen
